– STYLE INSPIRATION –
LADIES DAY HATS AND HEAD PIECES
When deciding on a hat or head piece I like to choose my outfit first. Once you know what you’re wearing it will then be easier to add a hat, accessories and a bag. I take colours, patterns and materials into consideration. Second opinions are always great too.
LADIES DAY DRESSES
Before Ladies Day it is a good idea to find out what the theme is. For the warmer months I think it’s a nice idea to opt for light, bright and fun styles. Don’t be afraid to go all out!
LADIES DAY RACE COATS
Coats during summer? Of course! I know we would all love nothing more than to go out for a day in nothing but a dress and heels however, the weather isn’t always going to be on our side. A stylish summer coat is the way to go. I love these bell sleeve beauties from Iclothing. Perfect to throw over your shoulders at a race day.
LADIES DAY CLUTCHES
A good clutch or bag is a must in my opinion. Like your hat or head piece, take into consideration the colour and material. Coordination is key and once you can fit all the essentials inside you will be well on your way.
LADIES DAY ACCESSORIES
Accessories are a girls best friend! Why not opt for a statement necklace to finish off your race day look? I am loving Emma Manley’s collection right now. Definitely worth a browse (click on the images below to go directly to her website).
